Recent Alco sightings

A place to post all Alco sightings, either railfanning Alcos or riding with Alcos on a tourist railroad. Any recent Alco sightings? Yesterday I spent the day railfanning around Scranton, PA.  A lot of Delaware-Lackawanna action including C425s, M636s, and a lot more. The day before that, I saw the NDCR Alco S6 101 with a short train.
